    Iv found the 2 clips on the sidecar. I got one out but the other does not want to pop out. Im trying to do it with it still wired to the console.

    yeah there are 2 big ass black connectors, in the middle section of the board, on each side, bend the metal case just a hair so you can get your fingers on either side of the top board, provideed the screws are taken out (there isnt any hidden screws) itll take a good little tug then come apart, pull it strait up so the connectors dont bend.
    simple and you will realize how easy it is after you do it
